Basically you're argumentation is right except for the different
threads.  In single-thread apartment mode, which is the only one
supported by CoInit, each thread using COM has to call CoInit 

However, I think the better way is to change the code to use
direct calls to ReadFile and to drop usage of COM.  This will
eliminate the whole problem and is likely way faster.
